Printed Rosters

At present, there is no one all-encompassing roster of ALL Mexican War soldiers, printed, microfilmed or in any other form.

The following is a list of printed rosters of Mexican War veteran records which may be found in your local public, university or genealogical library (you will have to check with the one nearest you). Some of the more recent publications may still be in print and may be purchased by mail from the author, the publisher, or from a genealogical book store.
